Work all 50 states, utilizing Extra Class call formats 1×2, 2×1, and 2x2A, where the suffix of the U.S. call sign represents the prefix of  a DX country. The following rules apply:

  1. Each of the calls used must have the PREFIX of a DX country represented in the suffix.
  2. On 2×1 calls, use the letter, or the district number and the letter in the suffix.
  3. Some countries have more than one prefix. You can only use a country once. Example: Italy uses four prefixes, if you use I, that’s it.
  4. Some prefixes are not usable, for example 3D2, T2 and V6.
  5. Use either ARRL DXCC or the one in 1990 or later callbook.
  6. Send a copy of the ones you use with your application for the endorsement. Also once you use one of the lists, stick with it and do not change.
  7. Examples: WM0G – use G for England; WC5T – use 5T for Mauritania. AA5CO – use CO for Cuba and K1BY – use BY for China.
  8. You must make 100 contacts, no more than three from each state.
